profile & recordings >>

One of The 10 Best Albums of 2013: ‘This collection of Irving Berlin songs has deliciously deft numbers like Shakin' the Blues Away, and witty ones like He Ain't got Rhythm (where Rodney Bennett's quavering tenor is just as satisfying in its way as Martin's rich, lingering contralto).' The Telegraph

 

Lifelong friends on and off stage, Martin and Bennett recorded three studio albums and enjoyed acclaimed concert performances in a collaboration that flourished over two decades. Recorded in New York, Say It Isn't So is their last recording together and one of which Claire is immensely proud.  Bennett's skilful arrangements highlight why Berlin was widely considered one of the greatest songwriters of all time and brilliantly showcase Claire's assured and expressive voice.

Claire and Richard's previous duo albums, 'When Lights are Low' and 'Witchcraft', received wide critical acclaim: 'their albums set the standard for classic interpretations of popular songs' (The Observer).
